no kidding - this sounds like bang a fat one down before going onstage and flying through a Bertha - Jer's energy is through the roof - Is this the same year that he jumped at Duke?

Interesting Drums>Space>Not Fade Away with Steve Parish's chopper providing an added dimension (or dementia) as his Harley revs up to the beat of Not Fade Away! This one is fun to play on headphones. Great show!
The NFA is SICK BTW with an unusual "Nobody's Jam" thrown in. The GDTRFB>Around smokes too as Bobby and Donna try to out do one another! This show reminds me of the 5/11/78 "mescaline show" with all the strange energy. Sounds like they were really having fun here. No subtlety here folks, this show FLAT OUT ROCKS! This show is all about rock 'n roll and crazy times! Theres even a "jumping-Jerry"-like U.S. Blues first encore that is fantastic! Before the final Sugar Magnolia encore Bobby leads the crowd in a "thank you Uncle Bobo" a'la 12/31/78! This is a fun, fun show!
Great sound quality (as usual) on the Miller transfer.
